Matching Your Silk Scarf to Your Skin Tone

Home Fashionably L8   Matching Your Silk Scarf to Your Skin Tone   

When it comes to choosing your fabulous hand painted silk scarf or hand dyed shawl, obviously you are going to want to select the one which is going to be most flattering in every respect. While the gorgeous, floating silk fabric looks stunning on women of all different shapes and sizes and the versatility of these wonderful creations means that you can wear them in whichever way best suits your shape and style, the color though, must be just right for your skin tone for your silk scarf or shawl to have maximum effect.

Although some women like to visit a color specialist to find out which shades work particularly well with their skin tone, there are some very simple guidelines that you can follow which do not involve having to pay for this service, and basically these revolve around the four seasons of the year. Simply examine your complexion in the mirror and decide which of the seasons most accurately describes yours.

Winter Complexions

Women who have winter complexions have hair which is at either end of the color spectrum. While some have very dark brown or black hair, others are platinum blonde. Their complexions are considered to be a cool tone with a tinge of pink or blue, and their skin might be pale to porcelain white, a yellowish-olive color or dark. Generally there is a stark contrast between the color of their hair, eyes and skin.

Winter people should look for silk scarves and shawls which feature strong, vibrant colors such as red, hot pink, black and navy blue, while beige, orange and gold should all be avoided.

Summer Complexions

Summer people have pale, pink skin and they are often natural blondes or brunettes with light-colored eyes. Again, they have the same pink or blue undertones to their skin but, unlike those with winter complexions, there is usually very little contrast between the color of their hair and eyes and the shade of their skin.

The colors which work best for people with summer complexions are the pastels. Baby blue, dusky pink, pale lemon, mauve and lavender are all excellent choices, but bold colors should be avoided as these have the tendency to make the wearer look washed out.

Fall Complexions

Of course, fall is always associated with rich, warm colors and those with a fall complexion have golden undertones to their skin, which might be pale peach, golden beige or golden brown in color. Usually they have red or brunette-colored hair and rich, earthy colors tend to suit them best.

Orange, gold, dark brown, beige, olive or even a rich, warm grey all work well for fall people, but pastels, blues, black and white are not at all flattering.

Spring Complexions

Along with fall complexions, spring complexions are also warm. The skin, which is pale ivory in color, has creamy white or peach undertones and people with this type of complexion normally have golden blonde, strawberry blonde or auburn hair and light blue or green eyes.

Spring people benefit from being able to wear a great range of different shades from ivory, peach, coral and golden yellow or golden brown, to aqua, bright green, clear blue and true red.

So, before choosing your fabulous handmade scarf or shawl, check out your skin tone so that you can select what works best for you and make a truly, stunning personal statement.

Exploding the Portfolio Myth

“The Reality of All Those Pictures” Written by Rick Trottier – RJT Images   I see images by the thousands on Facebook and Instagram of “models” taken by “photographers”, all of which are so very proud to sport their efforts for the world to see. I don’t even want to see how many others there must be on sites like Pinterest and Tumblr. And while some of the work I see is impressive when it comes to quality, ...

GlamModel: Sandi

A lot of models have crossed my threshold in the past 40 years. I’m always a bit apprehensive on our first shoot.
